RHAA Fall Ball 2018 Registration Information
 
Registration for RHAA Fall Ball is OPEN!
 
Registration is first come, first served, and teams may fill up, so please register early!
The deadline for registration is Aug 15!
 

Rush Henrietta Athletic Association (RHAA) is proud to offer a Fall Season of baseball and softball. Games are scheduled for
 
Wednesday, Sept 5
Saturday,  Sept 8
Wednesday, Sept 12
Saturday, Sept 15
Saturday, Sept 22
Saturday, Sept 29
Saturday,  Oct 6
Saturday, Oct 13
 
Make up games will be on Sunday but nothing beyond October 14th (Final Sunday Make Up date available). Game schedules are designed to avoid (as much as possible) other youth sports such as soccer and football.  Usually there is one practice per week, which is set by each team's manager.

RHAA would like to keep this an in-house league and play all of our games at our complex. Depending on participation, there may be a need to join Little League and travel to nearby towns to complete our schedules.

The focus of Fall Ball is developmental with less emphasis on competition and more emphasis on player improvement and having fun. This enables RHAA to offer instruction and games to returning players, as well as to those who were unable to play during the Spring season. In many cases, it also gives players exposure to the next level of play that they will be eligible for in the following Spring season.

The following table shows the Fall leagues and prices. Final league structures for any given year will depend on registration numbers for each group.
 
Please note that for fall ball we have extended the age range by plus/minus 6 months in many divisions to allow players the flexibility to "play up" or down by half a year if they would like.

We need volunteers for managing and coaching, so please indicate your interest on the registration form. The RHAA Board will select managers and coaches.

When registering, please login with your email address and password and select the program(s) for your child(ren). There is no need to create a new account each season! Be sure to use your existing account's email address, and click "forgot?" to set a new password if you have forgotten it.

REGISTRATION IS FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED, AND TEAMS MAY FILL UP. SO PLEASE REGISTER EARLY!

 
If you have any questions or concerns please contact our Fall Ball Commissioner, David Palmer.

2019 Travel Team Tryouts
Please click the link at the bottom of this message to register your child for the 2019 Travel Team tryouts. If your child is already registered for travel tryouts, you do not need to register again. 
 
The Tryout Schedule (revised for 17U) is below
 
 
The try-outs for our 2019 Travel Teams are fast approaching.  We have received a number of questions regarding the make-up of our teams for the coming year so here is some additional information.
 
RHAA Travel Policy clearly states that teams may be approved at any level from 8u to 17u.  We will field as many teams at as many levels as we are able to. We understand that there is great interest at the 10u level for possibly fielding a 9u team or a second 10u team.  To address this the Board has approved a second coach at that level in anticipation of the additional team. The Board is also prepared to approve additional coaches and teams at the 7/8 and 11/12 levels to meet the anticipated interest. 
 
The following coaches were approved at the July 2nd Board Meeting for the 2019 Travel Teams:
                                       8u - Pete Knittle
                                       10u - Shawn Hodgemen
                                       9u/10u - Brendan Cassidy
                                       12u - Dave Moriarty
                                       15u - Chris Koehler
                                       17u - Hans Blatter
      
Keep in mind that teams will be added at the 13u and above level if there is interest.
 

If you have any questions, please email  David Calogero at buffett65@hotmail.com and/or Pat Piedici at ppiedici@hotmail.com

 


The Tryout Schedule for the 2019 Travel teams
8U & 10U - July 31, Aug 1 and Aug 2
